    • If you were a fruit what kind would you be and why?

    • If you could have dinner with three people who are dead who would they be?

    This question will help the interviewers determine which people is your inspiration. For example, if you are an artist you can say Leonardo Da Vinci who was a master painter.

    You should answer this question with people who are significant in your line of work.

    • How do you get an elephant in the fridge?

    This is one of those questions which determine how good you are at problem-solving. You have to learn to be logic and think out the question on a literal view.

    Such a question will help them determine your personality. Are you a loner or a team player?

    • What is your favorite song?

    Answer this question really honestly. But avoid being caught up in the moment unless they ask you to sing a verse or two.

    • Who would win a fight between Superman and?

    If you didn’t watch Superman vs Batman the movie then you really need to.

    • How do you explain the color yellow to a blind person?
